Winnipeg Jets vs Dallas Stars predictions

Face-off: 2000 ET, 04/03/2022

Arena: Canada Life Centre

Winnipeg will look to build on Tuesday night’s 8-4 win over Montreal and go in search of a third straight victory when entertaining Dallas.

However, the Stars are also chasing a hat-trick after overcoming Los Angeles Kings 4-3 last time out and are on the edge of the wild card spots in the west.

An away victory will keep the visitors clear in the race to reach the playoffs and 7.75 for them to win by two goals is the first of our Winnipeg Jets vs Dallas Stars predictions.

Winnipeg Jets Odds

Winnipeg are within touching distance of the playoffs themselves as the season moves down the stretch.

And they could receive a major boost against the Stars with the return from injury of winger Nikolaj Ehlers.

Ehlers, who has 13 goals and 12 assists in 34 games this season, has missed 19 matches with a knee injury.

The Dame feels he is ready to return and said: “I’m ready to go and I talked to the medical staff about it as well.

“It feels great. Not just being on the ice and practicing with the guys, but being around the guys.

“A couple weeks alone in Winnipeg while the guys are on the road isn’t as fun as it sounds.”

Ehlers was hurt in a knee-on-knee collision with Washington’s Dmitry Orlov at the beginning of 2022.

Winnipeg have scored 13 goals in their last two games, so going forward is not a problem.

However, they did lose twice to Dallas in overtime last month and 3.9 for the Stars to win with over 6.5 total goals offers value from the NHL odds.

Dallas Stars Odds

The battle for the wildcard places in the Western Conference will go right down to the wire and Dallas are in the thick of it.

The comeback win over the Kings will give the Stars confidence as they rallied from 3-1 down to secure the gutsy triumph.

Head coach Rick Bowness insisted that even though his team trailed by two, they never panicked.

Bowness said: “Even though we were down 3-1, we were really confident in the way we were playing.

“We were controlling play and getting tons of chances. We just had to stay with the programme. Play the right way, keep doing those things, and we got rewarded.”

Forward Alexander Radulov scored his third goal of the season against the Kings and is confident that if they work hard, the points will keep coming.

He said: “We’re a good team and if we put up the good work, we’re still going to be there.”

Winnipeg have had the hot hand lately, though, and a fast start can be expected before the Stars settle into their rhythm.

So, let’s add a saver of 2.75 for the hosts to win the first period to our Jets vs Stars predictions.
